    Place the couscous into a large bowl and pour boiling water over; cover with plastic wrap and leave for 5 mins. Remove wrap, fork through the grains to separate and allow to cool. When cool, add the chives, parsley, basil, coriander, mint and dressing, tossing gently to combine. Season to taste.

    Pre-heat the barbecue, then place the quail breasts and mango cheeks onto barbecue grill and cook for about 5 minutes. Turn and cook for a further 3 minutes.
